When you meditate, you relax and gradually reach that state of thoughtlessness. Some people compare meditation to the seed of a plant. By nurturing that seed with worship, the more it will bloom. The practice soothes the weary mind and produces intense effects on our emotions and bodies. It could also be way of finding meaning and fulfillment in your life.
What are the advantages of meditating?
There are benefits to your health such as rejuvenating the cells in your body and fill it with more energy (Prana in Hindu philosophy).
Meditation is not baised to any religion. It can be practiced by any person, any gender, and any sect.
Through meditation, you start to live genuine reality. In other words, this is the existence that you yearn for. Before anything else matters, it should be your own self. Otherwise, no person or object will ever be of importance to you. The realization of your aspirations will be determined by what you ponder on at any particular time.
There may be instances that we can see our goals. The problem is we just do not know how to get there. What road should we take? There will be drawbacks. We can even find it frightening or anxious. However, we should remain steadfast all the way. Do not wander away from the pathway. Stay close to it so your attention is not diverted.
This is not about meditation but I urge you to think of fresh ideas! Your innermost ideas give rise to the reality you live in. These can be positive, negative or apathetic. However, these do not determine how you live. Everything will depend on you and you alone. Furthermore, you should not live under the shadows, desires or expectations of other people. It is the power and spirit within that will provide you with purpose and nourishment.
Meditate often so you will discover the meaning of your life. There should always be targets that will propel you to living your life very well. Find out what your values are since these are the quintessence of what you are made of.
